    ... up some more information about the trail, I noticed that other articles suggested walking halfway to Hatajuku and reporting the same km distance that I’d read to the train station. A quick search on google maps confirmed that the first article greatly underestimated the distance back to the station. I also learned that the trail joined the regular highway in Hatajuku so effectively ended hiking and turned it into potential dangerous highway walking. I amended our ...

    This morning we head off to Hakone, about 80 min train ride away from Tokyo, to stay in a traditional Japanese inn (ryokan). Hakone is located in Japan's Fuji National Park known for hot spring resorts and Mt Fuji views. At least we are told there are good views of Mt Fuji, not that it ever made an appearance for us.

    Mt. Fuji is such an iconic part of Japan, I had to venture to this historic volcano once during my travels. Unfortunately, it was past climbing season. However, there is plenty to see in the 5 Fuji lakes region and I was determined to have some fun. The Fuji Five Lakes region is located about 1000 m above sea level on the northern base of Mt.Fuji, with 5 likes know to be one of the best places to view Mt. Fuji and to base your climb. In the 3 ...

    ... adjacent island. Despite being only 15 km away, it took us over an hour to drive there. Just when I was thinking we should've taken the train, a ridiculously packed one passed us. Luckily we found parking even if it was further away than we would've liked. We passed many a restaurant with long lines as we trekked toward our destination. "Do you want to get in line for lunch tomorrow?" Mike joked at one establishment whose queue wrapped around the block. It ...
